Best Places to watch Football in Vegas

While watching yet another bet on the Bills fall apart in the depths of a dirty sports book is something everyone should do in Vegas at least once, there are also legitimately inviting places to catch football around town. From sports bars with hot waitresses, to those with even hotter wings, here are the seven best spots to post up and wait for Blaine Gabbert to throw six more interceptions.

Twin Peaks
As if the fine, classily uniformed ladies of Twin Peaks weren't enough, this classic lodge-style man-cave has insanely cold 29-degree beer, and two giant walls: one to watch all the games on, and a second to climb once you realize just how smoothly insanely cold 29-degree beer goes down.

Palazzo Las Vegas

Lagasse's Stadium
Not only do you get to grub down on Emeril's best Southern tailgate fare, but you get to do it in a 24,000sqft sports cathedral with 109 flat-screens, a massive 9'x16' projection screen with six rows of stadium seating, its own sports book with personal betting tablets, and a batch of private luxury boxes with arcade-style video games and pool tables.

Sapphire Las Vegas
Why leave Sapphire on a Saturday night, when you can keep the party rolling with their football parties which include a catered buffet, $1 halftime dollar dances, raffles and prizes, and 200 "cheerleaders" who will certainly suffer some serious wardrobe malfunctions throughout the day.

The Ainsworth

The Ainsworth
A more intimate spot to chill, The Ainsworth features 21 TVs, a Cantor Gaming betting station inside the bar itself, eats like sliders, wings, and pigs in a blanket, and a bottle service menu that'll give you the rare opportunity to pretend the Jets just won the Super Bowl.

This will mark Heraea's first full football season, and it's sure to be as big as the giant LED wall you can see from every seat in the dining room. On top of that, you can enjoy their two private skyboxes, a second bar with an outdoor terrace, pool tables, a sports betting station, and upscale pub grub like short-rib piquillo poppers.


PT's Pubs
Those looking to stay away from the strip have over 40 locations to choose from with PT's, each of which features giant food buckets filled with wings, sliders, fingers, AND fries. Oh, and they'll also help you set up an app for your phone that'll allow you to bet on sports! Legally, even!

Aria Las Vegas

Aria Sports Book
We'd be remiss to not include one straight-up sports book. Aria's features a wall of 90+ TV's, including two 220-inch bad boys, and array of semi-private couches, and lounge chairs with full food/drink service. Even the Bills would feel like winners here.

1. Twin Peaks Restaurant & Sports Bar 3717 Las Vegas Blvd, Ste 285, Las Vegas, NV 89109

If David Lynch walked into Twin Peaks, he'd likely sue them for copyright infringement, then realize what was going on, commend their clever pun, and hang out while watching attractive waitresses climb walls before serving him a ribeye pot roast.

3. Lagasse's Stadium 3325 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

It’s appropriate that this spot is called a “stadium,” because the space is so massive that it exceeds a typical sports bar: the 24,000 square ft., bi-level dome boasts over 100 flat screen TVs and a sleek, modern interior. And these aren’t your average bar bites either, considering it’s Emeril Lagasse behind the menu. Expect elevated takes on pub staples, from small fare like chili cheese fries with homemade beef and bean chili, as well as heavy-hitting standouts like the Creole Burger, a nod to the chef’s Louisiana roots with Andouille sausage, garlic mayo, three chili pepper gouda, and caramelized onions.

4. The Ainsworth 4455 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89123 (Strip)

The Ainsworth is one of Vegas' only in-bar betting windows, which means between that, the realllll good grub, and the alcohol, the contents of your wallet are going to kind of... disappear (but only 'til your next payday).

5. Heraea 4321 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89103 (Strip)

Heraea's a sports bar inspired by the Heraean Games, a 6th-century-BC competition honoring women's strength and skill.
